The foundation of ENGEL Used Machinery s.r.o. sees injection moulding machine manufacturer and systems solutions provider ENGEL, headquartered in Schwertberg, Austria, extend its portfolio to include pre-owned machines.
The newly founded company is headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic. “Eastern Europe is the largest and fastest growing market for pre-owned injection moulding machines”, says Leopold Praher, General Manager of ENGEL Used Machinery.
Leopold Praher has been with ENGEL for more than 30 years, most recently as Sales Manager Elast/LIM with responsibility for ENGEL’s global elastomer and thermoset business. Praher will initially fill both roles in order to prepare the Elast/LIM division, which is strategically important for ENGEL, in the best possible way for an orderly succession.
